Xavi Jovells, from the family behind Can Pineda and one of the founders of Els Tres Porquets, has his own space in the heart of Poblenou. The name Floret – which comes from the blossom of the pea plant – can throw you off a bit, because Jovells creates virile tapas and small dishes that are familiar and traditional, but with a haute cuisine and professional twist, plus linen tablecloths. The craft is evident in tapas such as the delicate cod fritters, substantial 'salmorejo' (cold tomato and bread soup) and a skewer of marinated lamb. The best bit is that most of the items on the menu are as affordable as those at a greasy-spoon tapas bar, but here you've got high quality products and expert preparation behind them.
